Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport intends to reopen bus route 109 with a route from the city center to Tan Son Nhat airport with a frequency of 110 trips/day and operates until 23:00. This is a bus route that has operated at the airport and was temporarily suspended due to the impact of Covid-19.

The Ho Chi Minh City Public Transport Management Center (under the Department of Transport) has just issued an invitation to bid for bus route 109 (Saigon bus station – Tan Son Nhat airport).

According to the Ho Chi Minh City Public Transport Management Center, this is a non-subsidized bus route. It is expected that the bus route from Saigon bus station to Tan Son Nhat airport has a distance of more than 9 km, the journey time is 45 minutes, the total number of trips in the day is 110 trips, the first trip departs at 5:45, last trip at 23:40.

This unit believes that, after a period of shutdown due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, until now, the number of passengers has gradually recovered, so it is necessary to re-operate bus route 109.
